Also, launching in the next couple of weeks at WantSunglasses is our range of Oakley ski goggles. Taking a fashionable jaunt to the piste to try out your D&G winter warmers?

Here’s an extra tasty bit of gossip for you in addition to this sunglasses style update…
Mischa Barton, who was recently one of the subjects of Fearne’s ITV2 show, ‘Fearne And…’ has expressed her anger at the way she was portrayed on the show. The former O.C. actress told OK!:
‘I think Fearne Cotton’s show is a joke and she’s a joke. I can’t hear Fearne’s name without seeing red. ‘I wish I hadn’t done it and that’s bad because there are enough misconceptions about me in the press. She’s got nothing to lose if she makes a more salacious story, she’s only got everything to gain.’

Chile’s President has praised the rescue efforts and has declared that his country will never be the same again after this extraordinary event. President Sebastian Pinera has said that he feels Chile is now “more united and stronger than ever” and “more valued” worldwide.
This can’t be doubted after seeing the ecstatic scenes of the final miner to be rescued, Luis Urzua, emerging into the light and out of the rescue shaft capping off a 22 hour operation.
While they are showing signs of ill heath, not one of the miners is in a serious condition which is amazing seeing as no one has ever survived as long trapped underground.
One of the aspects of the rescue that was vital to their health was the donation of Oakley sunglasses to protect their eyes upon emerging into the light. Oakley were approached about donating sunglasses and were only too honored to be able to assist in any way that they could. Oakley provided 35 pairs of Oakley Radar sunglasses that are designed to minimise heavy glare.
The single lens shield is a wraparound style that uses the darkest lens with a grey base and black iridium coating which would serve to help the miners’ eyes adjust to bright light after being dilated so long. The Oakley Radar sunglasses are typically used for high performance sports and feature an exterior hydrophobic coating that would have prevented water, mud, oil and dust from building up on the surface as the miners were hoisted to freedom.
There is concern for the miners’ sight and the possibility of damage to the retina. After being in the dark for a long period, the mechanisms by which the retina protects itself from damage from bright light can diminish.
Lets hope that the Oakley Radar Sunglasses were of some help to the miners’ sight, only time will tell.

X Factor uproar!
Even Philip Schofield has been giving his verdict on last weekend’s X Factor and more specifically Nicolo Festa’s performance and sartorial choices. Speaking on This Morning, Philip said,
“Well I think it was a mistake to put glasses on him. If anyone ever comes here as a guest and has sunglasses on, we try very politely to ask them to take them off, because you don’t get to see their eyes. There is a real barrier there.”
As much as we love the look, there’s a very good point there. Why put up barriers to the audience when you need them to vote you through the show? Strange choice in hindsight and probably not one that any more of the contestants will be trying anytime soon.
What do you think?

Super cool music mogul Kanye West has been flexing his fashion muscles bit by bit over the last couple of years and has become a regular fixture at the seasonal fashion weeks. Kanye knows how to exercise his fashion credentials to perfection in these bad boy sunglasses from Gucci. You’ve got to look stylish when you’re an all-rounder like Kanye. Not content with dominating the music world and forays into designing for the likes of Louis Vuitton, Kanye has directed and starred in a short film to accompany his new album. This man doesn’t stop
Still, at least he’s got the Gucci sunglasses of the moment to keep him on the ball when it comes to looking good. The Gucci GG 1627 sunglasses are sexy frames for any man this season. The acetate frame with the classic Gucci racing stripes add a great twist to the traditional aviator. It is hard not to be charmed by Kanye West’s mix of dapper style and urban street cred. It’s a combination that not many people can pull off with such aplomb so hats off to him.
